The article in Sunday's print edition on the Relay for Life left out some information, due to a computer malfunction.

The News-Argus apologizes for the error.

Here are the passages from the article that were missing:

Helen Bennett, 64, was a first-time participant. She has been a cancer survivor for 41 years.

"I think this event is great and one we need to uphold," she said.

To conclude the opening ceremony, Terry Butler, Tom Bradshaw and Dr. Adams, the three co-chairman, lit the Flame of Hope, which burned throughout the Relay. ...

Other awards for teams raising the most money were presented to Wayne Memorial Hospital, first, $75,068; Purple Star Survivors, second, $35,137; Shepherd Shockers, third, $26,934; and Friends Fellowship Class of New Hope Friends Church, fourth, $23,356.

This year's special awards went to Salem Survivors, Team Spirit; Boy Scout Troop 59 of Grantham; Boy Scout Troop 11 of St. Luke United Methodist Church; and Brenda Robinson, 10th anniversary celebration memory books.
